A few days ago, I wrote about Sony’s DRM¹ software, packaged on audio CDs, which hides anti piracy files on computers. I thought this would unleash a can of worms. I was underestimating.
Today, an officer with the Department of Homeland Security implied Sony’s tactics could risk lives during an outbreak of Avian Flu. Holy cow! Them’s fighting words.
This is really going to hurt Sony Music and the longer they take to clear it up the more harm it will do.
¹ – DRM = Digital Rights Management.
